Black History Month 2022 - Time for Change: Actions not Words

October is Black History Month in the UK and a time to celebrate the contribution black people have made over the centuries in shaping the dynamic and diverse country we have today. At Warren Primary we celebrated Black History Month through a series of events, workshops and assemblies, and are committed to recognise and teach Black History throughout the year within our daily curriculum. 

JB Rose, local singer and talented artist taught pupils songs in an assembly and the 'call and response songs' reverberated through the corridors all day as she spent time in different year groups. Her talk also focussed on mental health, healthy living and exploring ideas around self-belief. 

The educated and remarkable Sarah Appiah, lecturer in African studies and musician taught Year 6 pupils the history of 'slave songs', significance of the drum materials and shared amazing stories about the people who make these drums. 

Alex, a music teacher from the Caribbean taught pupils the history of Music from the Caribbean and how to play the mini steel drums.

Reception pupils read lots of stories including Handa's surprise, Handa's hen and baby goes to market and have also learnt about Mary Seacole and other people who help us. 

The Dynamic duo Mr and Mrs Rosemond-Justin, parents of our school, inspired pupils and staff with their personal life story. We were all inspired as they spoke about the previous careers, (Military service and Prison Officer) and current passions and charitable work. The charity that they have started "Across D Miles" embodies their motto of "Making a difference - one person at a time" and pupils and staff promised to follow in their good example and help make the world a better place. 


Panathlon Challenge 

James Dixon from Panathlon Challenge spent a lovely afternoon with the children in the Deaf Resource Base delivering a very special cricket session. James is an Ambassador for UK Deaf Sport and organises many SEND events for children.  Although James has been profoundly deaf since birth, this has not stopped him from doing things he loves.

He played football for a local club in Liverpool and is an Elite Cricketer for England Deaf Cricket.

The children in the Green room showed massive thumbs up as a form of gesture to show James what a fun time that they had.
